Interview with Studio 27
Interviewed April 21
Q & ATell us about Studio 27 and what makes your services so special, different and unique.
Studio 27 is a high end video/photography studio, focusing on capturing the raw emotion of a bride & groom’s day. Our photography approach is very photo journalistic, and our videos are shot very cinematic and documentary style. Our videos are all shot with DSLR’s in High Definition delivering a finished product unlike anyone in the market today.
Tell us about the latest trends your seeing in weddings when it comes to photography/videography and how you are keeping up with and/or keeping ahead of the trends.
Soon to be the latest trend in wedding video is shooting each event in High Definition using DSLR cameras. The use of DSLR cameras gives a unique look to the finished product. The images are crystal clear and colors will pop off of your screen. Our trained shooters can utilize the unique depth of field that a DSLR lens can give and a standard High Definition Video camera cannot. The photography trend is becoming very photojournalistic. A style we have mastered years ago.
Explain to the couples why having a skilled and creative photographer/videographer is essential to such a milestone event and what they should look for.
Having a skilled photographer/videographer is essential if you want to capture all the details and emotion of your day. Trained men and woman know what to look for. They can visualize the finished product, as the shots are being taken or set up. Nothing will be missed.
What is your formula for making sure each shoot is unique and that all special moments are captured and recorded for posterity?
Our formula for making each shoot unique is simple. Getting to know the bride and groom is essential. Understanding their personalities, the things they want and don’t want. We understand the timeline and we keep to it. We give ourselves plenty of time to capture everything without being intrusive and annoying.
What sets Studio 27 apart from others?
What sets Studio 27 apart from most of our competitors is our commitment to the Bride and groom. We DO NOT book more than we can handle. Our staff is OUR staff and knows every shooter in our studio. Many of the studios we have worked for before we opened Studio 27 have called in shooters a week or two before and have no idea the quality of their work. Believe me it is out there. We keep our volume low and our satisfaction rate high!
How do you want your couples and their guests to remember you when the party is done?
We want to be remembered as a studio that was easy to work with, delivered what they promised, were unobtrusive in their approach, listened to what the couple wanted and created a natural, fun atmosphere, making it easy for everyone to act naturally and casually.
When should couples begin thinking about photography/videography in their planning process?
Couples should begin interviewing photographers and videographers about a year out, depending on how many they plan on seeing. A studio like ours which limits it’s bookings per day book sooner than large studios that will use anyone as long as they can grab your deposit.
What are some things or information YOU need (from the couple) to ensure a job well done?
In order to ensure a job well done, we will need accurate timing of the day. If a couple has specific family photos, we will need that list as well. We want to know how comfortable they are in front of a camera therefore we include a complimentary engagement shoot with even our basic packages.
When should a couple book your services?
Couples should book as soon as they feel comfortable.
How many times do you meet with couples before the big day and what sort of things do you discuss at these "meetings of the mind"?
Meetings with couples are not limited to any number. We typically will meet three to four times before the wedding day. Once for them to gather info, second to sign a contract. Third for an engagement shoot and fourth to go over all final details. If a couple wants to meet again, our doors are always open and our phone lines always available.
